Bereavement Support

What is Bereavement?

Bereavement is the process of grieving and letting go of a loved one who has died. Bereavement is the state of loss when someone close to you has died. The death of someone you love is one of the greatest sorrows that can occur. Grief is a normal, healthy response to loss.

Description of the Support Group:

Connect with others in a monthly support group for people who have experienced loss of a loved one. In this group led by an licensed clinical social worker, people can share their personal experiences, ways of coping and helpful resources.

Benefits of a bereavement support group:
  • Reduces feelings of loneliness, anxiety and distress
  • Helps you learn new ways of coping
  • Increases feelings of hope and empowerment
  • Provides you with practical information and resources
  • Helps you communicate better with your loved ones
